In March, an external WashPod was erected in South Wales under glorious blue skies in just 3 days. It also needed a lobby but everything was complete in a week. The client was Stokes Case Management with Stephen Docker Associates.
WashPod’s modular, fully compliant design allows for both an internal or external set up with five models for total flexibility. The full size WashPod internal measurements of both models are 3.5m long x 2.5 wide and 2.2 high. The external WashPod unit is made of a highly insulated, waterproof outer case and all that is needed to connect the unit is a cold water supply (external tap) and a 2 x 13amp domestic, electrical sockets. The external unit’s dimensions are approximately 4.25 long x 3.55m wide x 2.6m high and, in many cases, these are connected via a temporary lobby to the main house. This can either be a simple, covered walkway or a fully insulated and watertight. Alternatively a 1.02m long ramp is used.
External units are fitted with an internal hot water tank and a pressurised shower unit. There is electric underfloor heating together with a heated towel rail to ensure that the WashPod unit can be maintained at a minimum temperature of 25°C if required. A commercial grade Saniflow unit ensures that all water from the both the shower and the WC can be pumped via a 40mm diameter, flexible pipe to a waste pipe up to 40m away.
The client is very pleased with their WashPod.
